Breaking News

The word out here in Kansas is that Ron Prince, the current offensive co-ordinator and offensive line coach for Virginia, will meet with the Kansas State President tommorow, and that pending his approval will be named the head coach of the Wildcats as early as tommorow afternoon.

Prince is only 36, and has been the offensive co-ordinator at Virginia for only two seasons. He is also not a part of the Bill Snyder coaching tree, so if this works out it will fairly surprising. Virginia's next move will also be worth watching.

(Update: ESPN.com is now reporting a version of this story as well)

He looks thugtastic?? What a dumb remark. No doubt this comes as a surprise to K-Staters, since someone from the Bill Snyder family coaching tree was expected to take over. Not much is known about Prince, so i will just wait to pass any judgement on him.

What is JCCC? I dont know of that powerhouse. What is it who is it? WTF do you use caps?
So many questions.. Did anyone know of bill snyder b4 he was hired?
No.
Were we on the edge of going to div 2?
Yes.
Are we now?
No.
Should we get a coach that is qualified even if he is white?
Yes.

I think our AD is a DA and went political rather than best man for the job.
